Feathers, Feathers, Feathers

I think the most important tip for painting feathers is to follow the direction of their growth and shape them accordingly.  They overlap, so are darker at the top where they overlap, and lighter at the bottom.  This bird's feathers are sleeker at the top as he stretches forward slightly, so make them a little smoother here (by lessening the contrast between dark and light).
